Aeronautics Fun in September
The Morristown Regional Airport together with the local EAA Chapter is hosting a variety of fun activities during the month of September. Usually this month is when they host the annual Fly-In event, but it unfortunately had to be cancelled this year due to COVID. You can still learn lots about airplanes, aeronautics, and see fly-over planes by participating in some of the events below.

The completed coloring page or pages should be submitted to EAAChapter1494@gmail.com or dropped off at the Morristown Airport terminal from now until September 30th.

CUB FEST/PARADE OF CUBS OVER MORRISTOWN
The LOCAL EAA CHAPTER has 10 – 15 Cub aircraft and other small, slow flying aircraft flying into the Morristown Airport on Saturday, Sept. 19th. They plan to have a number of these aircraft fly over retirement communities and other points over Morristown, as a way to share these aircraft with the community. The exact time will be dependent on the weather and arrival times of these pilots. These planes are mostly bright yellow and you have to smile when you see them! The are targeting a noon-ish start for the Cubs to begin taking off from the Morristown Airport to fly over DeWitt Place, Regency, then Kingswood School, then back to the airport.
